The Grand Rapids African American Museum and Archives project. If is very fitting that the acronym, GRAAMA, is rooted in the person that tells the stories, that holds the dreams and that lifts the voices.
The Grand Rapids African American Museum and Archives project is still in its infancy,
but the momentum is building and George Bayard invites us to contribute. People can contribute oral histories, archives materials and of course, they can contribute financially.
We sat down with George last week to talk about the project, its vision, the wealth of information and the importance of a counter-narrative to White Supremacy. Says George, “we recognize that the Grand Rapids Press, in doing our research, it was one sided in the way they depicted our community.”
